feedback about Mary Black Health System Gaffney
I am here to let people know that this IS a good facility with wonderful doctors and nurses who DO care and show compassion. My mom broke her hip and was taken to the ER. She was admitted for surgery which took place the next day. I stayed with her overnight for two nights and witnessed the staff firsthand. Now, there are times at EVERY hospital where EVERYONE is calling for a nurse and needs assistance, which makes the wait time longer than you'd like....that did happen time to time, but that's what the call button is for...call again.
My only thing I would've liked to see differently is for the bathrooms to be maintained better. For the visitors who use the restroom on the patient floor, it would be nice to have a clean facility to use.
Also the air system in the room had to be adjusted by someone or it would stay on blowing very cold. If the patient didn't have someone in the room to turn it on and off, the patient would need to call the nurses constantly.
Surgery was Friday and she is being discharged on Monday - a testament to the great job by the surgical staff and after care by attending doctors and nurses.
I wish a zero option was available as this place does not even deserve one star. Went into ER, no people in the waiting room at all, however, waited for 4 hours to be seen. Nurses are very rude, no empathy once so ever. The nurses go outside and smoke cigarettes on the bench in the court yard in front/side of hospital where benches are located for patient families. Gross. When I mean nurse (the girl was wearing a name badge had RN under it with a stethoscope around her neck) and I watched her smoke an entire cigarette then walk back in to take care of patients, unbelievable!! I think this place is unprofessional, needs to stick to no smoking for employees as they do for patients. Terrible ER visit with lazy staff. I said to the triage nurse wow I’ve waited a long time, 4 hours with an empty waiting room, she replied- I have been here 12 hours you can leave if you want. Really??? You work there fool, you have already charged my insurance from touching me in triage, are you kidding me??? I would drive the extra miles to go to whatever hospital around besides Gaffney Medical Center. It’s less than mediocre, the staff are not medically knowledgeable and very rude. Avoid at all costs, it’s a complete joke!
I love this hospital. Everyone treats me well and is attentive. I've never had a bad ecpirience. Outpatient services are fast with very low wait times compared to other facilities.
The nurse came telling my boyfriend that they was going to have our son do a urine sample, and draw blood and hooking my 7 year old son up to an IV because he was throwing up. I called up there because I was at home with my 1 year old who was also throwing up, but i had zofran for her that the doctor have her 2 months ago when she was sick with a stomach virus, and they wouldn't tell me anything that they were planning on doing to my son and me his legal parent.U could be dieing and they would let u die, but go because ur throwing up and they want to do all kinds of unnecessary stuff. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THEM.
Deplorable. The nursing staff seems disinterested and barely educated. Kept my daughter there 3 days and never told her plan of care or why she couldn't eat for three days. Soiled clothing left on bathroom floor for 3 days. Nothing happened until I reported to hospital administrators to intervene. AVOID THIS FACILITY . Unless you are unconscious and have the misfortune of being transported there, then no matter how sick you are , GO ELSEWHERE.
